Lift Me Up Challenge Card

I enjoy sketch challenges, and this Fab Friday Stampin Challenge
is a really great one!  I like the simplicity of it!
I also added components of the Paper Craft Crew 
Tic Tac Toe Challenge, following a diagonal line that included Shabby Chic, Crumpled paper and Collage.

 The colors for this card include Tempting Turquoise,
Sweet, Sugarplum, Soft Suede and Whisper White.
I used DSP from the Festive Birthday pack on page 173
for the clouds and balloon.  The banner was trimmed with
the Banner Triple Punch on page 186.

I used the bottom portion of the balloon die from the
Up & Away Thinlits Dies on page 10 of the Occasions catalog,
under the sentiment. 
 I stamped the clouds and cupcake frosting on the 
Soft Suede, then spritzed it with water, crumpled it and
then dried it.   I hadn't done that technique in a while and
had forgotten how much I like that look.

Stamp Off Balloon Pop-Up Sketch

Welcome to our Stamp Off Challenge, with Jackie
and the grandmas (Buffy and SusanX2) ☺☺☺
Today we are doing a sketch challenge.  I like this
challenge, as it's very straight forward and works with
lots of sets and framelits.
I went to some wonderful products from the Occasions Catalog.
The balloons were created with the Balloon Pop-up Thinlits
Dies and the Balloon Bouquet Punch on page 187 of the
regular catalog.  I grabbed the Urban Underground DSP on
page 47 (Occasions) and some retired black glimmer paper.

 Thank you for stopping by to check out this Challenge.
Now click on over to see what Susan and Buffy are doing.

Frozen Treats 3 Cones

The Cool Treats set, with bundled Frozen Treats Framelits
Dies (on pages 32-3 of the Occasions Catalog) makes
delightful cards for kids or adults.  I also find that the
sentiments are gender neutral and work well for cards!

Lastly, I really like the size of these images.  You can use
one treat on a card, or multiple images, in order to
create the card sketch desired.

Hey, Chick, One More Time

Periodically, I HAVE TO post a Hey, Chick (p 17) card.
These chickens are the greatest, and not just because 
they are FREE during the SAB period. 

The new Watercolor Pencils (Occasions p 24) make
this set even more appealing, because you can blend
and play with color.  It just never gets old!
